Introducing Mary Poppins

Hello my lovelies,

Today is World Book Day and my daughter’s school let’s the kids dress up as their favourite book character.  DD is obsessed with Mary Poppins and she couldn’t wait to dress up in this outfit we put together with the help of our local charity shops.

I could have splashed out £20 for a kids version of Mary Poppins’ umbrella with a parrot head but to be honest, I thought that would be a bit much. Her princess umbrella worked just as well.


We got the jacket, skirt, hat and tapestry knitting bag from our local charity shops.  I bought some daisies from ebay and sewed these on with some red buttons.   I made the bow tie with some wide red ribbon.


No Mary Poppins carpet bag would be complete without the obligatory tape measure.


‘Just as I thought. Mary Poppins, practically perfect in every way.’

What did you dress up as for World Book Day?

Bright blessings,

Mama R
